Music for Autism

This is a very special post dedicated to a very special group. I love this group oh so much. They offer interactive concerts for free to help enhance the quality of life for people on the spectrum. and when I say people on the spectrum just because a person is autistic doesn’t mean their family is not involved in the spectrum too!  The work Music For Autism does aims to improve the lives of those on the spectrum may they be young or slightly older. Based in New York, I love reading the comments from the parents, the musicians and the teachers. Reading their stories is so inspiring. I wish there were more things like this for children with Autism, all it takes is a kind heart and a little bit of charity to start something like this up.

 

The world is too Neuro Friendly for my liking. If we could change how the Big Wigs in the fancy cabinet see us then we can change what services we need and make them more friendly towards us.

 

Lubbock and Cairne established Music for Autism 14 years ago to help share their love of music with those on the spectrum. They do so much for not only those with autism but also schools and

“In addition to funding concerts, Music for Autism has supported special units and schools for children with autism. The charity’s music education and equipment grants have furnished sensory rooms and provided school transportation and school supplies for children. Today Music for Autism has a well-established presence in the United Kingdom, holding numerous fundraising and interactive concerts each year throughout Great Britain”.

 

I urge you to support them and I hope not to sound like Tesco here when I say Every Little Helps but it really does. As a community we need to be able to support one another. I will leave a link to their donation page at the end of this blog.

My About for 2016. Tada! LOL I am JOAG, Joag is a fictional character I created to help me write about Autism. JOAG is an acronym for Just One Autistic Girl. JOAG is a unique individual with a passion for autism. Now this year I am taking the blog a step further. Joag is creating a website. Not Just any website A web forum based on autism. creating a safe place for those on the spectrum. In my blog I tell personal stories my personal stories not some fictitious nonsense I make up to make my blog seem more relevant to you. Now I want a personal goal for me. I want to do something for me. Each day I want to be inspiring I am going to run 2 miles everyday. 2 Miles a day times 365 days. 730 Miles is doable and it’s a good start for someone just getting started. But my goal for the blog and site this year is the intervention for bullying. I don't have a stat yet for the number of people in the world with autism. But we do know that it touches 2.8 mil people a day How many people are bullied on the spectrum? How many are silent sufferers? How long will we let this go on?
